52n WPS OpenLayers Client TutorialRequirements: • Java SDK • Apache Tomcat (5.5.28 tested) • Apache Maven o Important: The current maven version 2.2.1 will not work with the POM.xml. Instead you have to use the maven 2.0.11 version. • Firebug Plugin for Firefox (optional but recommended)1. Checkout the SVN client and proxy repositorySVN Client Repository location:https://svn.52north.org/svn/projects/geoprocessing/WPS OpenLayers/trunk/WPS OpenLayersSVN Proxy Repository location:https://svn.52north.org/svn/projects/geoprocessing/WPS OpenLayers proxy/trunk/WPS OpenLayersproxy
Known Issues: • Access to restricted URI denied code: 1012 o Most likely the proxy settings are incorrect. Check if the adressed server are listed in the proxy.properties file, inside the wps_proxy.war. • The namespace issue: The WPS cannot handle different process inputs with the same namespace. Using the Geoserver WFS can lead to this problem, because the stores contain more than one layer and each store can only be accociated with one workspace. For example topp:tasmania_roads and topp:tasmania_state_boundaries layer can cause exceptions, when they are used one after the other. The solution is to seperate this layers in single stores an give them individual workspaces in the geoserver.
